    My cat was on my legs earlier today and rubbed her face against the keyboard... now some of the keys went wacky. When I try to use the question mark thingy, it uses this instead: É
    Weird. also it, these also pop up with the keys above the question mark, beside the letters, ^çà;è,.é
    what did the kitty doÉ ahhhhhhh i;ll go krezee.

    I know you can make different types of symbols using the character map. Start>Programs>Ascesories>System Tools. You can also type those characters with keyboard shortcuts. You can make this one- « and this one » by holding down Alt and typing 174 on the num pad for the first symbol, and 175 for the second. Realease Alt after typing the numbers. Try different combos...Hold down Alt and hit any three numbers on the numpad then release Alt.

    Alt 123= {
    Alt 143= Å
    Alt 182= ╢
    Alt 138= è

    For another example, My team designation or "Tag" for the clan I play Unreal Tournament 2004 with is «c». You get that by holding Alt, typing 174, release Alt, hit c, hold Alt and hit 175 then release Alt. So my in game name would be «c»Kid. :D

    Maybe when the cat jumped up there it hit the right key shortcut to change it to what it did.

    Best game ever as far as I'm concerned. Better than Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 in my opinion. I'm partial to the gameplay style though...Doom 3 and HL 2 are too sloooow and plodding for me. UT2K4 is sooooo fast...Keeps ya on your toes. Nothing like 18 player online DM in a small map...It'll make your head spin. :crazy::grin:

    UT2K4 is for the most an expansion to UT2K3. If you buy 2K4 you get ALL the content of 2K3, plus new stuff for 2K4. If you buy the 2K4 Editors Choise Edition you get even more above and beyond 2K4. New games types, vehicles, maps etc. It's almost the same exact game as far as game play, just a bit more refined and polished. More "user friendly".

    By using the alt key and entering a sequence of numbers you can change the type of key example 'alt 0233' = é It is great to use these keys for passwords also:)
